Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Speedway welcomed the beginning of summer with it’s 12th Annual Town Fair Tire Summer Blast-Off Fireworks program on Friday night, June 15th. Providing the fireworks on the track were Ted Christopher, who picked up his second win of the season in the 40-lap SK Modified® feature, Woody Pitkat, who picked up his first win of the season in the 30-lap Late Model feature, Jay Goff, who picked up his first career victory in the 20-lap SK Light feature, Josh Wood, who took a thrilling fourth win of the season with a last lap pass in the 20-lap Ltd. Late Model feature, and Austin Bessette, who scored his first career victory in the 15-lap DARE Stock feature.
In the 40-lap SK Modified® feature event, Keith Rocco took the lead ahead of Glen Reen, Dan Avery, Ted Christopher, and Tom Bolles, but the field was only able to get two laps complete before the caution came out for Curt Brainard, who hit the frontstretch wall coming out of turn 4.
Back under green, Rocco was in command, with Reen behind him. Avery was third, with Bolles and Christopher behind him. Christopher moved by Bolles for third, he got around Avery on lap-9 for third, and the charge continued with a pass on Reen for second on lap-11.
